New Home Card

Good evening to you all, I have had a busy day today, I have made up a couple of challenge cards, but I wanted to post this one 1st. My 2nd youngest daughter Mhairi and her fiance Allen, moved into their 1st home together yesterday. I had absolutely nothing in my shed (I hear you say, she must be joking, we have seen the inside of that shed...LOL). So I got out my bits and bobs off leftover card and made this House, I coloured it with my promarkers to give it a buildingish feeling...I then used my square punch for the windows, and added a brad for a door handle. I took apart a basket off flowers as they were the wrong colour and added pearly flowers from my stash. I used my daubers to make a background, which I picked up from Boni's blog at yesterday, which I loved the look off, if you have not yet visited her site, please go over, she is a very talented lady. I decorated the inside of the card, from some bits and pieces from my stash. I am quite pleased with the overall effect, and hopefully my daughter and her fiance will like it too. I will probably post the rest of my cards either later on tonight or tomorrow morning. Hubby going away on night shift and things need to be done....duty calls LOL. Hugs to all. Avril
